That's what I meant but don't the radiators act as an additional oil cooler?

Yes indeed Australia! You would think they would leave that well alone with our hot climate and all. But to be honest I don't think it's needed unless you track your car.
A radiator can be an oil cooler, if oil goes thru it. Unlike previous engines, if you have an oil cooler its not in the front of the car anymore. It's attached to the oil filter canister in the rear of B5x engine. See #4 in the pic

Maybe that extra sensor is for blind spot assist?

Looking good mate. Where in Oz did you get this done? What product was it exactly, and how much etc? Cheers.

Red is parking sensor, green is the side view camera. Top view uses the rear cam plus the ones underneath the mirror. Side view uses the two located right before the front wheels

coolant runs through the oil cooler, so the radiator does act as an oil cooler indirectly. i'm not sure if it's a separate system on it's own or not.

This engine has two separate cooling systems, one for the engine and the other for the water-cooler intercooler. The heat exchanger for the oil is tied into one of these, probably the engine cooling system.
